The second week in December in Prague was even colder than the first. Even underground travel was cold as a chill wind whistled own the deep, fast moving escalators. Ducking into coffee houses was one good solution. We read in the english language Prague Post (comes out thursdays) of Kava, Kava, Kava, an internet cafe in a courtyard on the same block as Tesco's Department Store and along with a nice cup of cofee and a bagel, we got some free time on the internet. Hungrily roaming the narrow, cobbled streets one windy afternoon, we turned up Skorepka street and spotted Skorepka Restaurant with a roaring fireplace in the corner! Stopped us in our tracks. Stumbling in, we sat down whaere we could see (and feel) the fireplace and look outside at passers-by. We ordered the 'special' --garlic, mushroom soup (palatable but uninspired) and goulash with bread dumplings (very good). We lingered over our food and czeck beer, and when the check arrived, it was a modest 210 Kc or about $10 U.S. for two. Recommended for its plain but good food, and fireplace. A true bargain. More later.
